Portsmouth have signed Barcelona youngster Frank Songo'o.
The France Under-19 international midfielder arrives at Fratton Park after Pompey lured him to England.
Chairman Milan Mandaric said: “This is a player with a lot of potential. He has both pace and skill so he is an investment."
Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie was similarly pleased. He told the club's website: “Songo'o is a great addition to the squad. He is a young and talented player.
“We're over the moon to have signed him and it's a real coup for Pompey.”
